The Leinster Senior Club Football Championship is an annual Gaelic football tournament played between the hundreds of senior football clubs in Leinster. The current holders of the Leinster title are St Vincents from Dublin. Offaly side Gracefield were the first winners of the Leinster senior club football championship in the 1970-71 season. The most successful club is Portlaoise from Laois, who have won the Leinster championship on seven occasions; yet despite these successes they have won the All-Ireland title on only one occasion in the 1982-83 season. Carlow club Éire Óg won 5 championships in 7 years in the 1990s. Dublin clubs have won the Leinster championship sixteen times, which is more than double any other county. The winner of this competition represents Leinster in the semi-finals of the All-Ireland Senior Club Football Championship.
